RE: Getzen/Sicotte
Thanks Walter for confirmation on Mary Ann. I think she was the first wife of my friend's father (surname Jorgensen). Marriage was in 1953, but don't think it lasted more than a couple years, and don't think they had any children. I have a feeling they divorced here in IL., but haven't come across any records yet. Thanks again, Phyllis

Hello Walter,
I saw that you set up the Memorial page for Louis Jeffrey "Chewy" Sicotte (1917-1988) and Bernadette Patricia Getzen (1916-1999). If you are related in any way, you may be able to help me in my research for another family. I'm specifically trying to verify if they had a daughter, born approx. 1934 or 1937 L'Anse, Baraga, MI. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer. Phyllis

a sibling was letf off of listing

I am researching deaths of my grandparents and aunt. My mother was a sibling of my aunt and she was not listed. How would I add a name of a sibling not buried at a certain cemetery to a family buried at the cemetery Redridge Cemetery/Liminga cemetery and I want the address and phone number for the cemetery so I may visit.
LaChapelle was my grandparents last name.
Thank you,
Lynne Sumers
